Madpom's Kaimanawa-Kaweka NS traverse

A north-south trip down the main range through the Kaimanawas and Kawekas.

See the associated route guide (track) for details

This GPX file is my variant of the true Kaweka 'main ridge' trip. The route I took dropped off to explore some new places and escape from the crowds. For a GPX of a more usual route sticking to the divide, see the separate GPX file associated with the track.

Note: This GPX file is drawn off a map, and not recorded form a GPS, so will not be completely accurate. Expect track to be accurate to within 50 meters.
